Replace file

This feature does exactly what you’d expect: replace an existing project file with a new version with the same underlying content. It’s useful when there is a problem with your current project file — maybe it's distorting, or you mistakenly uploaded a compressed file, or you’re replacing a scratch track with your final version.

Avoid data corruption

Replace file should only be used when replacing files of the same duration and content. Using a different replacement file may significantly corrupt your project.

How to replace a file

  1. Open the Project panel on the right-hand side. Make sure you're looking at the Files section.
  2. Click the Vertical ellipses icon.png Ellipsis button next to the file you want to replace.
  3. Select Replace > Replace file...
Replacing a file will maintain your current edits

Replacing a file with the same underlying content will not result in a loss of your previous edits. Ensure your content matches to retain all your current edits when using this tool.

Considerations for transcribed files

Replacing a transcribed file does not regenerate the transcript or change the alignment between the script text and other audio and video elements. Note that both the original and optimized files will be replaced.
